How it all began

It all started with a few guys that met in college. In their discussions, they all realized they have all been affected by one thing... pornography–either in their own lives, or in the lives of their friends and family. They found science and research proving the harm of pornography. They realized the legitimate epidemic facing our brains, our relationships, and our society. They started a movement and non-profit organization called Fight the New Drug.

After hearing from tens of thousands of individuals seeking healing and recovery from pornography and other forms of sexual compulsivity, they decided to created an anonymous online tool called Fortify to help provide education and awareness, connection with others from around the world on the same journey, and a way to track and visualize progress overtime. Fortify was later carved off into a separate entity to allow for the expansion to other digital wellness tools such as Lift, Turn, and Climb.
